I'm not making that comment to cast aspersions or be rude. I really have had bad experience with doctors the last few years. That doesn't mean that all doctors are that way (and I apologize for making it sound like I meant it that way - my emotions on this sometimes get the better of me and that may come out in a way I didn't intend). However, it is true that I've had some doctors that truly haven't given me the kind of treatment that I have been looking for. I had one really bad experience about 2 years ago that really has colored my perception a lot (and it wasn't even a weight issue that did it - it was a different health issue). She was probably the anomaly, but it still really hurt and made me leery of doctors going forward. I'm having to work through that.
I do appreciate doctors and the training they have done. And there are excellent doctors out there. I really do apologize for extending my emotions of the one above to all of them. That was absolutely wrong of me.
I'm trying to find a good general doctor now. One that will work with me in my health and help me be the healthiest I can be.
